Short Reflections – One

The summer solstice is in the evening hours now, here in Wisconsin USA.  No clear skies all day.  Yet the light is long and lovely in a muted way.  This recalls times of grief, when the light may have been less brilliant, in terms of my emotions, yet there in a beautiful way.  Always there.

As hard as some years were, and may be again, I also cherish them for the gentle gifts that remain, as time goes on.  When I think of the caregiving years with my mother, for example, I think of unconditional love.

So I thought I’d begin a series on this blog of short reflections.  Some prose, maybe a poem.  Simple posts.  Just words from my heart.

Blessings, Ellen
